YOU'LL 



REMEMBER 




SITUATED in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, nearly a mile 
above the sea, where the humidity is low and the air has a tang 
that makes life worth living, Banff is unrivalled for its winter 
sports facilities. Here ice and snow conditions remain ideal through- 
out the winter and good ski-ing is still available as late as mid-May, 
on the higher surrounding plateaus. 

Since ski-ing has become America's most popular winter recreation 
owing to its increasing charm and fascination, Banff is now inter- 
nationally known as Canada's premier ski resort. Yvhy not plan now 
for a week or two in this Winter Wonderland, and enjoy the brilliant 
Alberta Sunshine, where large numbers now spend their winter 
vacations. 

Radiating from the Hotel are trails to all ski-camps. Mount 
Norquay's slopes, reached by a good motor road, and only three miles 
from the hotel, are general favorites with the ski-ing fraternity. Here 
equipment may be rented, beginners may secure tuition, and others 
obtain more advanced ski-education from professionals at a moderate 
cost. Or you can make arrangements to visit one of the higher 
altitude camps, such as Sunshine, Skoki or Assiniboine, where snow 
conditions are unsurpassed. 



In addition to ski-ing, all other winter sports are available: Skat- 
ing, Curling, Sleighing, Tobogganing, Snow-shoeing, Ski-joring, etc. — 
these briefly outline Banff's recreational possibilities. A fine open air 
rink provides for hockey and the devotees of Figure and Speed skat- 
ing; while in contrast, bathing may be enjoyed in the famous Hot 
Sulphur Springs. 

The Big Event of the season is the Banff Winter Carnival, held 
annually in February, when contestants from far and near assemble 
to match their skill and speed in the various forms of winter sports. 

You will appreciate the hospitality of the Banff people, who are 
ready to help the visitor whenever possible. Local stores carry a 
select stock of all winter sport goods, which are reasonably priced. 

Banff, midst its snow-clad rugged grandeur, is to North America 
what St. Moritz is to Europe. If you are interested in a winter sports 
holiday you are cordially invited to write for full information. Our 
courteous and attentive staff are ever eager to assist you in planning 
your activities and the friendly, home-like atmosphere that greets you 
as you enter your Hotel — the comfortable lounge, with huge log 
fire — the hearty welcome — and the evenings spent in congenial 
company, all contribute to a holiday, the memory of which you will 
ever cherish. 



Fully modern hotel accommoda- 
tion is available at moderate 
prices on the American or 
European Plan.

ANFF and Lake Louise are two of the most convenient out- 
fitting points in the Canadian Rockies. Our large staff of 
licensed guides are available for private camping trips of 
long or short duration. 

For the angler, there are many lakes and streams seldom fished 
within a journey of a day or two into the mountains; these are 
being stocked continually from the Banff hatchery, thus affording 
excellent sport. 

In season the hunter has an opportunity to bag such game as 
deer, elk, moose, sheep, goat and bear. From ten days to a month 
should be allowed for such expeditions. 

For those who wish to get out in the wilds and enjoy Nature 
at her best, no more delightful region could be selected than the 
Canadian Rockies. Trips to the Columbia Icefield, Mt. Assiniboine, 
the Royal Group, Ya-Ha Tinda Ranch, Wolverine Plateau, etc., 
suggest themselves as outstanding for scenic attraction, easily 
reached by pack trains travelling over well maintained government 
trails.

COLUMBIA ICEFIELD 

"The Thrill of a Lifetime" 

HIS BREATH-TAKING TRIP of indescribable 
scenic grandeur, penetrates the very heart of the 
Canadian Rockies, and embraces that vast section 
between Lake Louise and Jasper, previously 
accessible only by pack-train and at considerable 
cost. 

This region has for many years fascinated the skilled moun- 
taineer in search of new thrills, and in it still remain many 
unnamed and unclimbed peaks. Here, twisting active glaciers 
descend the valleys to points close to the main highway and 
are of special Interest, not only to the photographer and 
geologist, but to all who are privileged to visit this new 
wonderland. The myriads of wild flowers which bloom in 
profusion in these alpine valleys and upon the mountain sides 
are a Joy to all nature lovers, who penetrate this new tourist 
paradise. Wild life is abundant, and big game, such as 
Rocky Mountain sheep and goat, moose, elk, deer and bear 
are frequently seen upon the hillside, or in the meadows. 

Some of the numerous points of interest on the tour are: The 
Columbia Icefield, reputed to be the largest deposit of Ice 
south of the Arctic Circle, one of the tongues of which ad- 
vances to within a stone's throw of the road; Hector Lake and 
Mt. Hector (11,135 ft.); Bow Lakes; Crowfoot Glacier; Peyto 
Lake and Glacier; Waterfowl Lakes; Howes Peak (10,800 ft.); 
Mt. Amery (10,904 ft.); Mt. Murchison, (10,936 ft.); Saskat- 
chewan Glacier; Mt. Athabasca (11,452 ft.); Mt. Wolley 
(11,170 ft.); Diadem Peak (11,060 ft.); and of special inter- 
est — the Snow Dome, a peak of 11,340 feet in height, still 
completely clad in solid glacial ice which dates back to the 
Ice Age. This peak is the very apex of the Continent, for 
from its glaciers, which are a part of the Columbia Icefield, 
rivers are born which flow to three oceans — the Athabasca 
to the Arctic, the Saskatchewan to the Atlantic and the 
Columbia to the Pacific. The climb to the summit is not too 
difficult for the inexperienced mountaineer, and what a thrill 
it is to really sit "on the top of the world." 

Here truly is a country yet unspoiled by man, and this new 
feature may Justly be termed "The Pioneer Tour DeLuxe," 
with a thrilling surprise at every turn. 

Columbia Icefield Chalet, owned and operated by the Brewster 
Transport Co., is beautifully situated at the foot of Athabasca 
Glacier, at an altitude of 6,525 feet. The Chalet is fully mod- 
ern, and comfortably furnished rooms, with or without bath,

$11.00 double, per day. Single meals — Breakfast, 75c; 
Luncheon, $1.25; and Dinner, $1.25.
